Need a Bigfoot statue for your front lawn, a stepladder to let your dog climb up onto the bed, or luggage that also functions as a skateboard? For a quarter of a century, SkyMall has had you covered.

But now the company is declaring bankruptcy.

SkyMall doesn’t have a captive audience anymore. Growing support for in-flight WiFi lets you make purchases from just about any online retailer while you’re in the sky… and it also gives you more options for doing something other than leafing through a catalog while you travel.

  1. “Need a Bigfoot statue for your front lawn, a stepladder to let you dog
    climb up onto the bed, or luggage that also functions as a skateboard?” — Hahaha, nice.

  2. Charging way too much for stuff on a plane is the sole charge of the airlines themselves.
    I mean if you had money left over for sky mall then how good a job were they really doing?
